Taney School marked National Fitness Day, 29th September 2017, with a host of initiatives. Many physical activities were organised both in classrooms and outdoors throughout the day to celebrate physical activity. All of the children were encouraged to be active by wearing their favourite sports gear to school that day and prizes from #Be Active were distributed to all classes.
We registered on the Ireland Active website for the “Take on the Teachers” challenge as part of National Fitness Day. Eight teams of pupils and two teams of teachers took part in a dodgeball contest characterised by plenty of fun, fitness and friendly competition.
As part of the #Be Active Schools Campaign “European Week of Sport” (23rd-30th October), we commenced the “Run Around Europe” initiative. Our progress tracker, designed by 5th Class, is beside the Active School Board.
